  Why I Chose CSU for my Graduate Studies

Recently the Graduate School asked students to create a 45-75 second video introducing themselves, their program, and expected date of graduation. They were also asked to tell why they chose CSU, what they love about their graduate program and how it has helped "Create You" for the future. Taylor Elston's video is featured below.
